The Nooner – The Best of Patrice O’Neal

Filed under: Obituary

If you’re a fan of comedy, today is a sad day.

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that stand-up comedian Patrice O’Neal has died from complications of a stroke he suffered last month. The 41 year old comic was a true original and well known for his outrageous takes on race, sexuality, and politics. He was a staple on the Opie & Anthony radio show and one of my favorite comics because he didn’t just do “bits”, he knew how to tell a story, which was why he was so great on O&A.

As a small tribute, I thought I’d share some of his best standup bits and stories from Opie & Anthony.

NOTE: These are all absolutely filthy, filled to the brim with bad language and non-PC material. Treat it accordingly if you’re at work.
